Profile Bio Text
Catherine Tate (born 12 May 1968) is an English actress, writer and comedienne. She has won numerous awards for her work on the sketch comedy series The Catherine Tate Show as well as being nominated for an International Emmy Award and four BAFTA Awards. Following the success of The Catherine Tate Show, Tate played Donna Noble in the 2006 Christmas special of Doctor Who and later reprised her role, becoming the Doctor`s companion for the fourth series in 2008.
Tate`s partner is stage manager Twig Clark. They have one daughter, Erin (born at London`s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in January 2003) with whom Tate was pregnant during the filming of the first series of Wild West and The Catherine Tate Show. Following an emergency caesarean section to deliver Erin, Tate suffered from postpartum depression, from which she only recovered after the filming of the second series. During this difficult period, Clark gave up his work to care for Erin so that Tate could concentrate on her own work. She also suffers from occasional panic attacks. The family currently has a home in Richmond-upon-Thames, London. She has both a cat and a dog, the latter of which was given to her by Jonathan Ross. Regarding her personal outlook, Tate has said "I`m an incredibly negative person, so any form of success is only ever going to be a relief to me and set my default position back to neutral."
